Carbon fiber is used in the construction of strong, lightweight components. It has also turned into a fashionable way to dress up a vehicle and that’s where Dupli-Color Carbon Fiber Kit comes in. The company’s two-step spray-on paint process consists of a base coat of graphite metallic followed by a patented finishing coat called Dimensional Effex that actually makes the finish look like carbon fiber and adds a glossy, 3D-like protective finish. The kit works on both metal and plastic surfaces, but for the latter Dupli-Color recommends you apply the special adhesion promoter. The kit can be purchased at most auto-parts and department stores for about $25. Check out www.duplicolor.com for full details.
